Field Music have been busy! Not content with the current state of affairs, they have set about ‘making a new world’ and, oh my, have they made a fantastically quirky world of pop majesty or what?!

This 19-track song cycle about the after-effects of the First World War - but this is not an album about war and it is not, in any traditional sense, an album about remembrance.

There are songs here about air traffic control and gender reassignment surgery. There are songs about Tiananmen Square and about ultrasound. There are even songs about Becontree Housing Estate and about sanitary towels. From ballads to funky stomps, Field Music take us on quite the journey.
